. governor romney has a perspective that says if we cut taxes skewed toward the wealthy and roll back regulations, we'll be better off. i have a different view. i think we have to invest in education and training. i think it's important for us to develop new sources of energy here in america. that we change our tax code to make sure that we're helping small businesses and companies that are investing here in the united states. that we take some of the money that we're saving as we wind down two wars, to rebuild america. and that we reduce our deficit in a balanced way that allows us to make critical investments. now, it ultimately is going to be up to the voters, to you, which path we should take. are we going to double down on the top down economic policies that helped get us into this mess? or do we embrace a new economic patriotism, that says america does best when the middle class does best? i'm looking forward to having that debate. >> governor romney, two minutes. >> thank you, jim. an honor to be with you and pleased to be with the president. i'm pleased to be at the university

said he's going to cut taxes for wealthy people? >> we recall he's an etch a sketch guy that trance formed himselfs. and we have to wond yir which mitt is going show up f you layout what the president has been talking about of course, you can look good we've expected an aggressive debateor, we didn't expect a dishonest debateor to show up perfect strategy. liar, liar, pants on fire, fire. and 46 million americans on food stamps, 17 million more than when you took office. and there is $6 trillion in new obama debt. and this is no longer george w. bush's fault. here with reaction is paul mugg bestseller, pat gadel. do you know who just lied? author of the study at princeton. >> right. >> and there is -- points out obama took his interpretation of the plan out of context which is -- . >> he lied about what the conclusion was. >> there is i think americans understand telling the truth cut rates across the board by 20% and eliminate deductions and exemptions. and that is where he can keep the rates the same. and i mean, i think the business is how the west reacted to the one issue that i

but not your own facts. >> 1 months you've been running on this tax plan. now, you're saying big bold idea is never mind. the fact is that if you're lowering the rates the way you describe, governor, then... it is not possible to come up with enough deductions only affect high income individuals to avoid either raising deficit or burdening the middle class. does anyone out there think that the big problem we had is that there is too much oversight and regulation of wall street? because if you do, then... governor romney is your candidate. >> don't forget, you put $90 billion, like 50 years worth of breaks into solar and wind. to sole lynn dra and fiskar and tesla. i had a friend that said you don't just pick binners and losers, pick the losers. and carl rove joins us. let's go to the issue of undecided. jump in there. those at least watching. >> well, we're likely to see a bump out of this. not much of a bump but a little bit of a bump. first debate is most important of the debates and this typically the winner that gets a point two points out of the debate. there is a close race like this
promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy. the fellow on stage last night said he didn't know anything about that. the real mitt romney said we don't need anymore teachers in our classrooms. don't boo, vote. [ cheers and applause ] but the fellow on stage last night, he loves teachers. can't get enough of them. the mitt romney we all know invested in companies that were called pioneers of outsourcing jobs to other countries. but the guy on stage last night, he said that he doesn't even know that there's such laws that encourage outsourcing. never heard of them. never heard of them. never heard of tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas. he said that if it's true, he must need a new accountant. now, we know for sure it was not the real mitt romney because he seems to be doing just fine with his current account. so you see, the man on stage last night, he does not want to be held accountable for the real mitt romney's decisions and what he's been saying for the last year. and that's because he knows full well that we don't want what he's been selling for the last year.
taxes for the wealthy. in the primary he said he's going to cut taxes for everyone. >> i'm going to lower rates across the board for all americans. isn't that a change? >> let me repeat what i said. >> lying, denying and alibiing. >> is that leadership? >> we can't debate the debate. >> the war continues. >> let's move on. >> we are awaiting a major foreign policy address. >> romney boiled down the president's foreign policy to one of hope. >> hope is not a strategy. >> but on actual foreign policy romney's specifics were rather thin. >> i'll support the libyan's people efforts to support a lasting government. >> how about iran? >> prevent them from acquiring nuclear weapons capability. >> that's the same. >> this is the same guy who couldn't even go to the olympics. >> he will say anything, he will do anything. >> his mention of russia. >> without question of number one geo political foe. >> there are two kinds of success, initial and ultimate. >> i still believe you in and i hope you still believe in me. if you vote for me in november i'll finish what we started. >> with four w
justify raising taxes on the middle class has been buried the last four years. how in lord's name can they justify raising taxes with these tax cuts? >> vice president biden just today said that the middle class over the last four years has been, quote, buried. we agree. that means we need to stop digging by electing mitt romney the next president of the united states. of course the middle class has been buried. they're being buried by regulations. they're being buried by taxes. they're being buried by borrowing. they're being buried by the obama administration's economic failures. >> reporter: romney campaign put together a conference call to draw attention, more focus to the comments by the vice president. the obama campaign pushed back saying this was just another act of desperation and what the vice president was talking about were -- were situations or a climate that was put in place by the failed policies of the former administration. i'll tell you what, at the very next event during his remarkings, the vice president did touch on the same subject but left out the word buried. s
trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy. the fellow onstage last night said he didn't know anything about that. >> tonight, the post-debate political landscape seems rather different. a whopping 67% think mitt romney won the debate. 25% for president obama. there's a long way to go in this debate and the divide between left and right is growing. that brings me to tonight's battleground america. the debate you have been waiting for. jennifer granholm versus newt gingrich. she's the former governor of michigan. he's of course, the former presidential candidate and speaker of the house. just as in last night's debate, we are running a clock at the bottom of your screen to keep track of speaking time for our debaters although frankly, i want a real debate. if you two decide to go at each other, chew each other to pieces, that's fine with me. we'll forget all about the clock. if i want to interrupt and pick you up on any inconsistencies in your arguments, i will be piling in with impunity also ignoring the clock. so the clock really is just a visual tool to amuse viewers at home. welcome
. >>> preaching politics from the pulpit. hundreds of pastors plan to do it today. why? they want the irs to tax them. plus, hear from the man planning a death-defying recordsetting jump from the edge of space. >>> a campus police officer shot and killed this 18-year-old freshman at the university of south alabama yesterday. school officials say gilbert collar rushed the officer several times and kept threatening him. he reportedly was make ed and abbinging eradically. his friends remembered a different student. >> you could ask anyone that knew him. he was a great, loving guy. always made people smile. you know, is not the kind of guy that people move him and said he would do something like this. >> i want to bring in cnn legal contributor paul cowen joining us from new york. paul, good morning. >> good morning, randi. >> the victim in this case is 18 years old. he was a college freshman. considering the circumstances, he was apparently, reportedly, make ed. wouldn't they have been able to see that he wasn't armed? i mean, why do you think it led to something like this? >> you know, randi, the
to raise the 45%, the cayman islands and the tax return and the bain capital, obama was basically conceding that those are not legitimate shots. how can you spend $200 million advertising to push these facts and then when you confront the guy, you don't mention them? >> greta: you see -- i actually thought that that was smart because he looks like he is above this. that he is more presidential. and he leaves the dirty work to somebody else and doesn't have fingerprints on it, if they are done in campaign ads and certainly, pac ads, rather than his own campaign. >> that's the point, greta. it's the president says this is not worth dignifying and making it an issue, this is not worth the dignity of a presidential race, how are people going to vote based on it? it's dismissing the importance of your own campaign by not alluding to it. i think the final thing is that romney put obamacare back on the map in this election. this election was all about the economy. now it's about the economy and obamacare. and particularly the health care rationing board. i think that was very effective. i think th

, being a tax cheat, swiss bank accounts, all that kind of stuff, can be rebutted. >> sean: what obama will say -- thus this will be mostly on the economy. obama will say, it's getting better. that was the recovery summer of 2010. >> but romney -- there were a whole lot of people right now who want to vote for romney. want to vote against obama. but they don't want to vote for romney because of all the negatives obama's piled on them which has not been answered. they're sitting on one side waiting for permission to jump over and vote for romney. in the debate, that he's not a monster, that he's a man of integrity and defending himself on this stuff, can absolutely encourage them to jump over and make it possible for them to do that. >> sean: what a joke all weekend, watching the obama people trying to lower expectations. >> yeah, right. >> sean: 2-1. >> let's par remember that most debates work in favor of the challenger. the challenger walks on and does a good job, like reagan did against carter, all the fears of him go away. carter against gerald ford in 1976. mondale against reagan
raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried the last four years. >> in the richest country in the history of the world this obama economy has crushed the middle class. >> reporter: romney's ad team quickly seized on the remarks churning out a web video. at an event in denver rubio piled on. >> those happen to be the words of the distinguished vice president of the united states mr. joe biden. no, don't boo. he's the best thing we got going, guys. don't boo. because in a moment of clarity, in a brief moment of clarity he just told us what we already knew. >> reporter: romney's aides say they expect the president to call on the gop nominee to offer specifics. >> we're going to limit deductions. >> reporter: but in an interview with the denver tv station, romney began to do just that. >> well, you could do something for instance as an option you could say everybody's going to get up to a $17,000 deduction. and you can use your charitable deduction or home mortgage deduction or others, health care deduction and you can fill that bucket. if you have a $17,000 bucket that way and
mentioned romney's comments on the 47% of americans who don't pay income taxes. >> 47% of the people will vote for the president no matter what. >> reporter: romney tried to put an end to the controversy once and for all on fox. >> clearly in a campaign with hundreds, if not thousands of speeches and question and answer sessions, now and then you'll say something that doesn't come out right. >> reporter: democrats maintain that tone deafness extends from main street to sesame street. so, obama aides sent a protester in a big bird outfit to mock his call to end funding for pbs. romney will spend part of the weekend in debate prep and the other part in hitting the president on the economy as a senior romney adviser put it, job growth should not be the new normal. >>> now to that shooting that killed a u.s. border patrol agent. the fbi now thinks he may have died by friendly fire. 30-year-old nicholas ivy was shot and killed this week in arizona. shell casings found at the scene was fired by ivy and another agent who was wounded. >> as you know, investigators have made progress into the
/ryan tax plan will raise taxes on middle-class families with a child, one or more children, by an additional $2,000 a year. how -- all kidding aside, with all the boos, look, guys, this is deadly earnest, man. this is deadly earnest! how they can justify, how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried the last four years, how in lord's name can they justify? >> god bless him. >> mark mckinnon -- i love him. mike, we love him. we love him! has anybody not told him, they've been in the white house for the past four years? buried? the middle class has been buried over the past four years. >> joe, i am being deadly earnest now, man. deadly earnest. okay? on how anybody -- how anybody can attempt to bury the vice president is beyond me. >> i'm not trying to bury him. i got a good laugh out of it. mark mckinnon, you think we may hear the middle class has been buried over the past four years? >> 47%, especially tonight. >> and it's fresh. >> it's fresh, it's new, it's relevant. the one other thing i'd mention, joe, just look at the general mood of the co
but doesn't tell us how to pay for t as much as he wants to deny it, he does have a $5 trillion tax cut for millionaires that will cost middle class families a bigger tax hike. >> but still -- >> but that, i think, is the challenge for him. >> still, ana, conservatives always suspected romney was moderate. despite what maria just said he is showing a moderate tone at least. are republicans willing to embrace what they call a rino -- republican in name only? >> i thenk he is far from being a rino. he he is adopting a more moderate tone. i am elated by it, carol. it happens on both sides of the aisle. we're seeing a multi-dimensional mitt romney. we had seen the businessman, the fix-up artist. we had not seen the guy, the father, the human, the friend. we're seeing a will the more of that. it's helping. he had to do it. he had a huge gap. my question is, what took you so long? they're a great influence on him. we've known, we've heard that ann range of motiomney is calle stabilizer, very close family, close couple. the more of this mitt we see the better. conservatives will be fine with i
on the tax cuts is just plain wrong and i think virtually every analyst has said, and even your deputy campaign manager said the charge is wrong. but forgetting that for a second, the job of the president is supposed to be to be confident and to be able to stand up for what he believes in and to be able to articulate what's wrong. mitt romney walked over him. >> i will be honest with you, i think he was a little taken aback at the brazenness with which governor romney walked away from so many of the positions on which he's run, walked away from his record. and that's something we'll have to make an adjustment for. it takes a certain, as president clinton would say, it takes a certain brass to do what governor romney did there, and it's consistent -- this is what he used to do in private business. i mean, he was the closer at bain capital. and the basic theory is say whatever you need to to get the deal, and that's what he did that night. >> again, this is so laughable. "the new york times" -- by the way, "the new york times" is kicking it into overdrive, the week in review section. rep
into a recession if the spending cuts and tax increases kick in all at once in january. that kind of uncertainty is freezing businesses from doing any hiring. >> alison kosik, thank you. "cnn newsroom" continues now with brooke baldwin. >> thank you so much. hi, everyone. i'm brooke baldwin. so exciting. seven hours and counting until the presidential debate tonight. mitt romney, he is gaining in two swing states. could this be romney's springboard? romney has whittled the president's lead, take a look. he's whittled the president's lead in the two percentage points in virginia. this is according to a poll released today by marist college, the wall street journal and also nbc news. two-point lead for obama, that's down five points last month. keep in mind we're talking virginia, that's 13 electoral votes there. and check it out, similar story for you in florida. 29 electoral votes there. now, a one-point, one-point lead for obama, down from four points in september. we should mention here that poll shows the president still with the seven-point lead in ohio. we can't forget about ohio. but speak
in into record deficits is because we put two wars and two tax cuts on a credit card. we didn't pay for. and now mr. romney wants another $5 trillion in tax cuts that he can't pay for. we're not going to let that happen. we are not going to fall backward, not with so much at stake, not now. it didn't work then. it won't work now. and that's why i'm running for a second term as president of the united states. i will tell you, i'll tell you what we need to move forward. we got to invest in small business. we got to invest in manufacturers creating jobs here in ohio, here in the united states of america. we have got to recruit 100,000 new math and science teachers to train to make sure our young people have -- to make sure our young people have the skills that they need. we got to train 2 million workers at community colleges to bring down college tuition cost s. we got to cut our oil imports in half and create thousands of new jobs and energy. we got to use the savings from ending the war in iraq and afghanistan, to pay down our deficit. put some people to work, doing some nation building right he
again. >>> why won't romney level with us about his tax plan which gives the wealthy huge new tax breaks? because according to experts, he would have to raise taxes on the middle class, or increase the deficit to pay for it. if we can't trust him here, how could we ever trust him here? >> roller coaster week hitting a high note for president obama. the new jobless numbers are easing the pain of his poor debate performance and bring romney's momentum to a sharp stop or it may not. joining me now, "new york times" columnist, nick kristof. let's start with the job figures today. because it's clearly good news for barack obama politically if nothing else. >> not only the numbers today but the revisions for the last two months. we seem to really be on a trajectory and you know, this is going -- apparently what really matters is not the economy for the year but the economy at the moment as people approach the election. people are beginning to vote. >> the good news for barack obama there. not so good news his performance at the debate. common consensus is a bit of a turkey. >> he blew it. >> w
